Jason Momoa explores his “Aquaman” character for Warner Bros.’ forthcoming Justice Group film BY SAEED NASIR


Widely-known for playing as the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, Jason Momoa is currently one of Hollywood’s most exciting leading men. In Warner Bros. Pictures’ Justice Group, he reprises the type of Aquaman / Arthur Curry, who was first observed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He again plays the character in the highly expected stand-alone feature Aquaman, aimed by Adam Wan, anticipated out in Dec 2018.

 

In Justice Group, Arthur Curry is a wildcard, having organization to his perception a strong man is strongest by themselves. When Bruce (Ben Affleck) tracks him down in a remote Icelandic fishing town, it’s seems a safe gamble that no amount of persuading will cause the Aquaman of lore to forego his solitary good works, or his self-imposed solitude.

Quite simply, Arthur is not a team player. The offspring of your human daddy and a royal mother from the famous underwater city of Atlantis, Arthur has never experienced truly at home either on land or at sea. However in the frigid outland he calling home, the person with the outdoors hair, hulking body, and piercing eyes has discovered some semblance of calmness, and he isn’t thinking about going out of the fringe community he defends, and that helps to protect his anonymity in return.

Similar to Think about Woman’s status as a demi-goddess, Aquaman’s half-Atlantean heritage gives him a historical, mythical quality, which, in his case, is only further improved by his intuitive understanding of Earth’s vast but still typically untapped oceans and the mysteries they keep. But while Diana was raised on the experiences of Amazon history–and spent some time working out her own feelings on that score–Arthur has yet to start that personal journey, making him still feel somewhat alien to his put in place the world. But when the proverbial wolf is at his own door, getting started with the Category becomes inevitable.

“He’s the heir to the throne of Atlantis, but he’s not the king yet. So, as always, he’s between worlds. But at the iced ends of the planet earth, he has a purpose. Arthur is an excellent man, he helps people who honestly need him, and he’s found a location where they allow and value him. He may take off his ‘face mask’ here,” Jason Momoa says about his persona.

 

Momoa himself could be considered a relatively untraditional choice for the type, as the professional doesn’t quite appear to be typical illustrations of Aquaman, from any period. But it’s a good example of Zack Snyder’s tendency to think beyond your box–or, perhaps, to look deep inside. “For me, Jason embodies the soul and heart of the character,” he offers. “He has a rugged energy and it is incredibly smart. This was not really a hero we wanted to have a whole lot of polish, and Jason’s acquired that little rock n’ move that makes Aquaman relatable and cool, but at the same time, like all DC supers, aspirational.”

“When he confirms he has a location in the Justice Little league, that’s when he begins to believe he could easily fit into anywhere,” Momoa observes. “And he really can put his skills to good use.” Those talents include wielding a gleaming, powerful Trident that can part the sea, exceptional swimming rates of speed and the ability to breathe underwater.
